CyberKnife Centers Are Meeting Increasing Demand for Radiosurgery Using Sophisticated Treatment Planning and Delivery Technologies

SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Accuray Incorporated (Nasdaq: ARAY), a global leader in the field of radiosurgery, announced today that Philadelphia CyberKnife is seeing increased patient throughput using their recently installed, next generation CyberKnife(R) Robotic Radiosurgery System.

The next generation CyberKnife System was installed at Philadelphia CyberKnife, a US Radiosurgery center, in Havertown, Pa. on January 30, 2009 and began treating patients on February 19, 2009. Prior to upgrading to the new CyberKnife System, Philadelphia CyberKnife was treating an average of 26 patients per month. In their first full month of treatment post-upgrade, Philadelphia CyberKnife treated 38 patients, a 46 percent increase in patient capacity with the next generation CyberKnife System. Additional months of use and experience are likely to increase these efficiencies even more.
